The point isn't which version of Qt comes with the distribution, but the 
binary builds. Given people do use binary builds (to have an up-to-date 
Qt) but not mess with OpenSSL, the outcome will be that SSL will not be 
functional for the users of the distributions I mentioned before.

Does TQC have any statistics to share here?

If the argument becomes "those people can stay with LTS or build from 
sources", then well, let's go all in for the binary builds, shall we? 
Like build with C++17 and GCC7?
